Looking for future AOIIs

OMEGA-MIAMI UNIVERSITY What is Sisterhood?

Sisterhood is a wonderful mixture of laughter, tears, excitement
and sadness that is shared w i t h a bond of love. The unique
relationship that grows through the years becomes a special part
of us that w i l l never fade or lose strength. As we travel the dusty
path of life, never really knowing what to expect nor where we
may end up, a sister is a friend that w i l l always be w i t h us . . .
she may not be near, but her smile will always linger in our heart.

The lessons we learn, the triumph we experience, the hardships
we endure and the f u n times that we create are all a part of
growing. To share this w i t h others is but a delight itself, f o r what
is a woman who stands alone without a sister to lean upon?

For those of us who have chosen this special bond of
sisterhood, let us look deep within ourselves to find the real
beauty of friendship. Talk is nothing without action. Take a
moment of your busy day to acknowledge your sister, the one
you have pledged with, the one you have shared your life with. A
touch of a hand, a smile or a gentle hug to let her know that your
thoughts are with her, is all that it takes. Consider yourself lucky
to have this special sisterhood that God has given us and may we
in return share it with one another.

The strength of Alpha Omicron Pi depends on each of us. May
you always know how important you are to the sorority. Don't
ever be afraid to turn to any of your sisters, don't neglect the love
you have grown f r o m . Just as a rose thirsts for water, so our
hearts long for understanding and acceptance.

We have pledged one another, and with one another we will
forever remain Alpha Omicron Pi.

LEGACY INFORMATION FORM

gift to each of us and to the fraternity, a gift which deserves extra care and attention."

To New and Old Sisters Alike

Welcome to AOIl,
Glad you didn't pass us by
The love here is real
It's our fraternal seal.

Friendship is an integral part
Of every AOITs heart
The friendships here you bind
W i l l last a lifetime you'll find.

And when things aren't going right,
Even though you try with all you might,
You don't have to be afraid,
For the sisters will come to your aid.

And when you want to walk,
Or may be only to talk,
Just turn to your sisters,
For they're really good listeners.

Make the most of AOIl
For the time will too quickly fly.
So never waste a moment,
On idle thoughts of torment.

But believe in yourself and your sisters,
And not let small thoughts turn to blisters,
For the love of A O I l is true,
Trust in this and you'll never be blue.

Through the years you will grow
And learn to love the rose, I know,
For it is the symbol
of all that AOIl holds humble. . .
